CALGARY – Hockey Canada announced on Friday that 31 Canadian-born players that played hockey in Europe during the 2004-2005 season and were not under NHL contract last season, will attend an orientation camp at Rexall Place in Edmonton, June 15-18th for Canada’s National Men’s Hockey Team.

The goal of the camp is to orientate many of Canada’s top eligible players for the options and opportunities that lie ahead for the 2005-2006 season for Canada’s National Men’s Hockey Team. The opportunities include the events that Canada’s National team will participate in for the upcoming season (Deutschland Cup – November; Loto Cup – December; Spengler Cup – December; and tours during European breaks throughout the season), the options that will be reviewed are whether or not NHL players will reach an agreement with the NHL to participate at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games in Turin, Italy in February.

Thirty of thirty-one players that will attend the orientation camp in Edmonton have previously represented Canada internationally at the World Juniors, Men’s Worlds or at various events in Europe such as the Deutschland Cup, Loto Cup and Spengler Cup.  The National Men’s team participated in four events this season using 76 different non-NHL players from 13 different leagues finishing with a 10-4-1 record.

The breakdown of players attending the orientation camp in Edmonton is three goaltenders, 10 defensemen and 15 forwards. Three additional players will attend, but will not participate due to injury.

Canada’s Head Coach Marc Habscheid will lead the players through on-ice work outs, as well as off-ice meetings to review everything from team systems to the 2005-2006 schedule of National Men’s Team events and the Olympic Games.

All practices are open to the public at Rexall Place in Edmonton, AB, free of charge.  The schedule of the orientation camp is as follows:
